Lemon Blueberry Quinoa Muffins


As I mentioned here, I have always been a huge fan of anything in the pasta family.  In an attempt to turn this habit into something healthy, I have been trying to eat the "good" carbohydrates such as whole grain noodles, brown rice, cous-cous and my new favorite, quinoa.  While perusing various blogs one day, I stumbled upon a delicious looking recipe for Lemon Blueberry Quinoa muffins (recipe here).  Since I had some free time this past Saturday morning, I decided to cook a batch of these little power muffins for a mid-afternoon snack.  After my initial taste test, I learned that snack is probably not the best word to describe this recipe as they tasted like they were in-fact healthy.  While this of course is not a bad thing, I am going to put my own spin on the next batch where I will substitute vanilla yogurt for the sour cream, add in pecans or walnuts, and a few dashes of brown sugar.  I will be sure to let you know how this version turns out!
